    Michelle, I'm really enjoying this series of podcasts. As a fledgling podcaster I know how hard it can be to make the audio sound good. But this is superb.

    The only request I would make is could you cut (or lower) the background music. I've got chronic tinnitus and it's hard to distinguish the sound sometimes!

    Love the content, too!

    I found your site on Blog Catalog. Love the podcast! Great information. And love your voice! I'm going to let people know about you.

    I'd love for you to check out our podcast, (The Guy's Perspective) It's up on itunes.
    It's not your typical guys' show.

    Thanks so much. I appreciate it.
